If you want to call this a porter go ahead, but it's a really a stout.
The half pound of chocolate malt by itself would make it a stout.
I would check out the recipes in Terry Foster's book on porter
for excellent porter recipes. Compare your recipe with the stout
recipes in Lewis' book on stout. These are both in the Classic
Beer Styles series from Brewer's Publications.
My porter uses 3 ounces chocolate, 1 ounce black malt.
